England’s skipper

Former Shropshire and Shrewsbury skipper John Foster is preparing for another Ashes battle with the Australians. John, president of Shrewsbury Cricket Club and Performance Director at Cricket Shropshire, has again been appointed as skipper of England’s Over 60s team this summer. He led his country’s Over 60s side on a successful tour of Australia last autumn, when England retained the Ashes with a 2-1 victory in the One Day Test Match series.

Australia Over 60s are touring England this summer and their provisional itinerary includes a game against Shropshire Over 60s at Oswestry on 19 July. They are also playing John’s England side in three One Day International Tests during the tour, scheduled to take place in Lancashire, Kidderminster and Salisbury.
